Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, is one of the biggest providers in England’s South West, with over 2.5 million patient contacts per year. The hospital’s maternity services have been assessed by the Care Quality Commission as “having the highest standards in Antenatal care.”

“The safety and security of the mothers and babies in our care are the cornerstones of our practice, and XTAG gives both mothers and staff peace of mind,” says Kathryn Owen (Interim Clinical Midwifery Manager).

The System was installed in the White Horse Birth Centre, Delivery Ward, Hazel Ward, and Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU).”

A RFID tag, placed on the baby’s ankle, connects to a central control station that alerts the staff if a tag is tampered with, if the baby is in an unauthorised area, or close to an exit.

With over 5,000 annual deliveries the maternity unit is a busy environment so only the most reliable support will do. Kathryn goes on to say that “the team from Active Tagging have gone above and beyond to ensure that [the system] runs as smoothly as possible.”
